52.0 remote no stop button

Just got the hopper 3 and joey and got two new remotes. There is no STOP button on the remote! How are you supposed to stop something you recorded? Often times I want to stop something I'm playing back and watch it later. What's the solution??

Press the select button. Scroll to stop.

You can also press and hold the back button.

having a hard time getting used to new remotes. I despise multifunction buttons. They allow remote to be a little smaller but tend to have more steps or take more time to do what you want. Especially when the secondary features of buttons are not labeled well. even harder to learn.

Once you hit stop, there are options to choose from, not sure why this is a problem.
Select left select pretty effortless. To stop, then arrow from there.

I have 40s also and never use them.

First way I found was to use the voice control. And say "Stop".

Pressing and holding is NOT the same as STOP.  Pressing and holding is LiveTV.  Two different functions.

Maybe "preference" is a better word than "problem". There are two reasons some may find having a stop button preferable.
1. It is a Stop button how to Stop is clearly marked.  Select does not obviously mean Stop, non-intuitive.

2. With a Stop button, one short press of one key.  With the Select sequence, 4 button presses involving multiple keys.

So yes, either mechanism works.  It is a question of preference.  Think of it this way, you could have a remote with one button, call it select.  From there, you get a menu and you select the option you want from a menu.  I doubt anybody would want that.  So there will be varying opinions on where the line is drawn between fewer keys on the remote vs more direct access to the remote controlling functionality.  To paraphrase, the "traditional" remote is bigger, "what's the problem"?
